Day one recap: Preparation helps, and so does staying ahead of the game on things you must do. I had made a big frittata on Monday, so breakfast for this week can simply be reheated. I made a quick lunch (tuna and white bean salad - yea for canned products). Dinner was a little more complicated due to my disorganization and getting out of work late (black bean tacos, loosely based on the linked recipe, with a good portion of the filling being sauteed turnip greens). I had one taco and my second helping was just the filling to keep the corn tortillas limited.
I had planned to go for a walk, as one of my "big rocks" for the week was 30 minutes of exercise. I had been itching for an #ingress
invitation from +Niantic Project
as a motivator for morning and mid-day walking, as there are several portals around where I live and work. I have the account, but the full walk didn't happen because I got stuck at work (I only got about 10 minutes in). So with the knowledge that success requires flexibility, I'll move the 30 minute goal to next week and make this week's goal 7,500 steps per day (which for me would be marked improvement). I only had 6,500 when I was ready to settle down in the evening, so walked in place while reading and hit the goal in no time.
Today's mini-goal is to focus on getting work done so I can make time to do the fitness and healthy cooking tasks.
